This yoga studio is large and airy with ample studio and change room space. The modern lobby welcomes with unique light fixtures, cool cement floors and industrial style ceilings. We also appreciate the extra precautions the owners take to keep floors hygienic, and the air in the rooms fresh and bacteria-free with special "Forbo" flooring and an ozone air-purification system.

ABOUT BIKRAM YOGA:
Bikram Yoga welcomes beginners. This 90 minute class consists of 26 beginning postures and is conducted in a hot room (approx. 110 degrees) with, hopefully, high humidity. But don't be fooled into thinking beginning means easy - it doesn't! Iron men and couch potatoes, alike, have found themselves floored in "dead man's pose" just minutes into this challenging workout. You don't have to be strong or flexible or in excellent shape to do this yoga - you simply have to be willing. What we also really like about Bikram's is that every studio teaches the same sequence of postures so you always know you're going to get a full-body workout, a great benefit for travelers.
